Met up friends over breakfast at Aloft in Chennai. It is wonderful how you are never short of conversation among them. And books of course.
As for Aloft- not bad at all- lovely decor, pleasant but slow service, good food.
Heard that Grand Sweets have opened branches all over Chennai. I feel a lingering sadness at the death of an old world brand in its old exclusive avatar. But I also welcome the New Grand sweets and hope it stays just as grand and also comes to Blore soon.
